I was hopeful. I tried it on. And then I remembered why I had chucked it to the back of the wardrobe in the first place. It just didn't work on me. The wrap around bit was too low and the shoulders were too saggy and I probably should have tried it on in the oppy I bought it from all those years ago.
But it was so soft.
So yesterday morning instead of chucking it back, I cut it up, stitched it back together again and made a dress for Miss Pepper.
There weren't any big enough bits to get whole pattern pieces out of, so I just stitched some smaller bits together to make two pieces for the front and two for the back.
I didn't even care that I sewed the back wrong side out.
And then I pinned a doily to the front. I'll sew it on later.
I can't stop crocheting these doilies at the moment. They are strangely addictive.
I can't stop crocheting them either.
Since I discovered how easy they are to make when you forget about a pattern and increase until you get to the size you want and then make the sides, they are actually fitting heads around here too. Which is a good thing because it is positively arctic outside.
Check out the rest at Kirsty's.
